Apocalipstick is the follow up to 2014’s A Real Fine Mess, which received considerable recognition, including a ‘Blues Album of the Year’ Juno nomination (2014) and win for the ‘Blues Album of the Year’ and ‘Alternative Album of the Year’ at the WCMA’s (2015).
Their previous release Checkered Past won the ‘Blues Act of the Year’ at the SiriumXM Indies (2013). They’ve also had songs featured on television shows such as: ‘CSI’, ‘NCIS: New Orleans’, ‘Bitten’, ‘Killjoys’, ‘The Good Wife’, ‘Blue Bloods’, and the aptly named TV movie ‘Lizzie Borden Took An Axe’. Apocalipstick has been mastered by Brian Lucey’s Magic Garden (The Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys, Dr. Dog, Lucinda Williams, The Shins) and produced by John Raham, Shawn “The Harpoonist” Hall, and Matthew “The Axe Murderer” Rogers.
The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer are relentless touring artists known for their high-energy, sweaty, dance-floor-boogying performances. They have recently toured the UK with St. Paul & The Broken Bones, the EU with Dr. Dog and XIXA and the US with Tinariwen. They have also shared the stage with Taj Mahal, Booker T Jones, Mother Mother, The Sheepdogs, and Serena Ryder and have played their fair share of festivals including: Winnipeg Folk Fest, Ottawa Blues Fest, Calgary Folk Fest, Montréal Jazz Fest, Vancouver Jazz Fest, Festival D’Été de Québec, and Regina Folk Festival. 2017 will see the band bringing their bed of chaos to a festival, hinterland and city near you with Apocalipstick.
